Rutorrent Filemanager keeps "igniting"

Problem: when using the rutorrent Filemanager plugin to e.g. create a archive, do a move or unrar files the Filemanager seems to crash with messages like these:

[10.01.2017 10:31:33] FILE MANAGER ignited
[10.01.2017 10:32:04] FILE MANAGER: Action has finished :

pretty sure its some file permission error or something. but .i can not for the live of me figure out where it went wrong.


  • Debian Jessie up to date (KVM)
  • Quickbox fresh install as per instructions.
  • Plex install encountered a issue (had to manually “mkdir var/lib/plexmediaserver && chown -R plex:plex var/lib/plexmediaserver” to get it to work).

Any ideas ?

You’re right, this is more than likely a permissions issue with the needed move/extract bash scripts located at /srv/rutorrent/plugins/filemanager/scripts/

Could you do a permissions read with the following command and verify permissions?

Use the following to check:
la -l /srv/rutorrent/plugins/filemanager/scripts/

It should read as follows:

####Post Script
I have been noticing more and more instability in regards to Debian as well. :thinking:

Output as follows:

 la -l /srv/rutorrent/plugins/filemanager/scripts/

chmod 755 /srv/rutorrent/plugins/filemanager/scripts/*

should do it.

Edit: it did.
